In 1986 Dallas, homophobic drug addict party boy Ron Woodroof is diagnosed with HIV and is given 30 days to live. He started taking the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved AZT, the only legal drug available in the U.S, which brought him to the brink of death. To survive, he smuggled anti-viral medications from all over the world, but still illegal in the U.S. Other AIDS patients sought out his medications forgoing hospitals, doctors, and AZT. With the help of his doctor, Eve Saks (Garner) and a fellow patient, Rayon, Ron created the Dallas Buyers Club, one of the dozens which would form around the country, providing its paying members with these alternative treatments. The clubs, growing in numbers and clientele, were brought to the attention of the FDA and pharmaceutical companies, which waged an all out war on Ron.
